If Mark Henninger and Scott are convinced, there is hope for me yet. I hope the futureshop in town gets an atmos demo. I'd like a date before I marry the technology.

Just to note, the frequency response on the low end will change significantly once they are ceiling mounted. The "plastic" tone could have been caused by vibration- again remedied by mounting. Its hard to do an apples to apples comparison

Okay, got a chance to compare these a bit to my outdoor M3s. This was the easiest/quickest way I could do a direct A/B comparison. This is not high end audio equip, this is my shop music system. Cheapo Sony AVR, two outdoor M3s (v4), and a cheap 10&q

I just ran some numbers on what I would get from Axiom if I wanted to trade in my QS8s (one pair from 2004 and one pair, current model, from late 2011 but not used until mid-2012) to swap to something like M2 for monopole surrounds to lead up to Atmo

It's AWD. It's got a bit under 40K. How about a paper maché chauffeur hat?

Nice!! Does it have AWD? The limited models are pretty sweet. How many miles on it?

Interesting video from Home Theater Geeks that's very germane to this thread. Thought I would share. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j23aG6pSYok Lauded home theater designer and constructor Dennis Erskine shares some of this projects and outlook on

What concerns me about all the new atmos details is the new ideal height for side and rear surrounds of 1-1.25x the height of the mains. Basically 4-4.5 feet as Nick said. Not an issue for in wall speakers, but on wall.... Kind of draws away from
